[texts]Mars Sample Return Lander Mission Concept Study - Phil Christensen
The Mars Sample Return (MSR) concept is a campaign of three missions: a sample acquisition/caching rover mission, a lander mission to fetch the cache and deliver it to Mars orbit via a rocket, and an orbiter mission that would capture the orbiting sample (OS) container and deliver it to Earth via an Earth Entry Vehicle (EEV). A fourth component is the Mars Returned Sample Handling (MRSH) element that would include a sample receiving facility (SRF) and a curation facility...

[texts]Mars Geophysical Network Options - Dr. Lindy Elkins-Tanton
Several trade study sessions were conducted to survey a wide range of mission architectures that could meet, to varying degrees, the National Research Council (NRC) Mars Science Panel's proposed science objectives of a Mars Geophysical Network (MGN) mission. Nine architectures in total were investigated, five of which were targeted at New Frontiers class missions. Two Discovery class missions and two Missions of Opportunity (MOOs) were also considered...

[texts]Mars Geophysical Network Concept Study - Dr. Lindy Elkins-Tanton
The science objectives of the Mars Geophysical Network (MGN) mission study were divided into two categories: primary (the science floor that would need to be addressed to justify the mission) and secondary (additional goals that prospective principal investigators would reasonably add, given sufficient resources). By request from the Planetary Science Decadal Survey Mars Panel, this study addressed only the primary objective -- to characterize the internal structure of Mars to better understand ...

[texts]Mars 2018 Sky Crane Capability Study - Bobby Braun
The purpose of the Mars 2018 Sky Crane Capabilities Study was to "explore the full range of science capabilities that could be delivered to the surface of Mars in 2018 by an MSL-derived Sky Crane EDL system" [1]. NASA commissioned the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) to perform this study. The Planetary Science Decadal Survey Mars Panel was particularly interested in the following science pathways: a surface field geology/astrobiology pathway, a subsurface geology/astrobiology pathway and a netwo...

[texts]Mars Polar Climate Concepts - Wendy Calvin
Architectural survey study sessions were conducted to explore the degree to which science objectives, related to the study of the Martian climate via the record preserved in the polar-layered deposits, could be pursued by small (Discovery-class) to moderate (New Frontier's class) missions.

[texts]Mars 2018 MAX-C Caching Rover Concept Study - Raymond E. Arvidson
The proposed 2018 Mars Astrobiology Explorer-Cacher (MAX-C) caching rover would be a NASA-built mid-class rover that would be the first component in a Mars sample return campaign strategy. NASA is projecting to launch the proposed MAX-C rover with the European Space Agency's (ESA's) ExoMars mission on a U.S.-provided launch vehicle in mid 2018; the entry, descent, and landing systems would use the "Sky Crane" approach developed for Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) to land a pallet with both rovers ...
